    Default Celebrity self-typings

    I thought it would be good to compile celebrity self-typings here for reference, and in order to prevent me from posting mostly MBTI-typings in "proper" threads.

    If you have twitter and follow many accounts, searching for MBTI-types may provide such typings.

    Helena Bonham Carter - considers himself an introvert (according to http://www.celebritytypes.com)
    Sean Connery - considers himself an introvert (according to http://www.celebritytypes.com)
    John Cleese - considers himself an introvert (according to http://www.celebritytypes.com)
    Marina Diamandis (Marina and the Diamonds) - considers herself an introvert (according to http://www.celebritytypes.com)
    Diana, Princess of Wales - INFP (MBTI), reputedly
    Roger Ebert ENFP (MBTI) (according to his twitter account...I think)
    Dakota Fanning ENFJ (her Jungian self-type according to http://www.celebritytypes.com)
    Megan Fox - considers herself an introvert (according to http://www.celebritytypes.com)
    Lauren Laverne ENFJ (MBTI) (according to her twitter account)
    Lykke Li INFJ (MBTI) (according to her twitter account)
    Nigella Lawson - ESFP (MBTI) (according to her twitter account)
    Jennifer Jason Leigh INFP (according to http://www.celebritytypes.com)
    JK Rowling INFJ (MBTI) (according to her book The Silkworm)
    Mia Wasikowska - INFP (her Jungian self-type according http://www.celebritytypes.com)

    Quite surprised at some of the people who consider themselves introverts.

    Well, Megan Fox is definitely an introvert if you've seen or read any of her interviews..I would guess an IXTx. Dakota Fanning as an ENFj is definitely possible and Princess Di could be an INFp or ENFj (only a Socionics ENFj though). Just my thoughts

    Well people get all kinds of results when they take the tests and read a little about typology. We see it in this forum also. Celebrities are no different.
    The decisive thing is not the reality of the object, but the reality of the subjective factor, i.e. the primordial images, which in their totality represent a psychic mirror-world. It is a mirror, however, with the peculiar capacity of representing the present contents of consciousness not in their known and customary form but in a certain sense sub specie aeternitatis, somewhat as a million-year old consciousness might see them.

    Rooney Mara was introduced to enneagram by David Fincher. She considers herself to be 5w4. [x]

    David Fincher types each one of the characters in his films, as well as getting his cast members to take the test, so there are probably quite a few actors out there who are definitely familiar with the system. Rooney Mara is familiar with MBTI (as stated in the interview) but she doesn't mention her results.

    I'd be interested to see what those character typings are. If socionics ever does become "mainstream"/scientific it might actually become expected for screenwriters to give their characters types and realistic interactions.

    Salman Rushdie:

    Rushdie's results on a Jungian type test score him as ENFP.

    People don't know what a type is. They take a test and identify with something without knowing what it means. Sometimes they get the right result but often not.

    I recently met a woman on Tinder and we've been on a few dates. She knew about types. She had taken tests and read about mbti. She identified as INFJ. She was surprised when I told her she is actually ESTP (SLE). Although a very calm ESTP.

    At least that seems like a reasonable typing for him. I'd type him one of those two.

    From what I see, the consensus here for notable individuals is often widely different from what those individuals themselves perceive. I think it is useful to at least bear in mind their own assessment.

    EIE, imo. Biggest firestarter in the socion.

    Edit: He could be Ne dom, if so, I'd say IEE.

    I know little about him, but that is what I would otherwise have thought too. And certainly ILE>IEE IMO.

    But I think you can get a lot of flavour in one sixteenth of human personality with the exception of maybe SLIs.

    Yang might be ILI, so INTJ is not too far off even if there is no direct crossover for introverts.
